    Good afternoon everyone,

    As a new member I would like to introduce myself. Retired photographer/car restorer now living in rural France. I've been around vintage and classic cars and trucks all my life, but I still love to try and learn something new every day. My main target lately is to try and make Youtube videos of some of my projects in the hope they might be helpful to others interested in our hobby. If you are curious to have a look, just type my name into the Youtube search box.

    Good luck with the VFF.

    Tony Hillyard

      Thanks Tony & Welcome to the VFF! I am glad you found us.

      You'll see a lot of familiar names here, and some others that you may remember from many years ago. This site has a better way to post your Youtube videos than using the traditional link. The tutorial on how to do that is listed in the forum support / feedback sticky.

      It is located here on post #11
      https://www.vintagefordforum.com/for...re-upload-tips

      Depending on what your material is, we can maybe think about creating some kind of Youtube technical information thread or area. (if your interested) Again welcome and if you need any assistance feel free to reach out to me.

          Welcome Tony,
          I sent you another email this morning. Looonnngg night for me, just waking up now.
          I know the furum here will certainly enjoy your informative youtube videos.
          Keep brousing all over this forum. (Mitch can attest to this) I've been lurking everywhere here and have made discoveries that make this forum the most user friendly that I have ever encountered. Your investment of time searching this site will not be wasted. Very good mechanical, and restoration information is stored in a much easier format. That, if you need to search for something, it is much easier to find.
          Welcome to the VFF, I personally know that you have alot to offer to the forum, as well, you will reap huge rewards just for being here.

            Hey Tony, WELCOME to the VFF!!

            I look forward to the information you can bring to this forum, and will be looking for your videos too.

            BTW, some time ago I watched your video in the fitting of the roadster side curtains. Very informative, anxious to see what you come up with next.

                              Tony, that's probably the most professional video I've seen on U tube. The camera stays on the subject, there is no constant panning in and out, there is no camera shake, and I like the way you speed up the boring action of removing bolts.

                              A lot of videos on U tube I turn off after a few seconds because they are so slow, constantly moving in and out, or not showing the subject, or they are shaky.

                                  The rear axle dolly plans were added to the video thread for anyone that is interested in building one.

                                    Thank you Tom. Coming from you I take that as a real compliment.

                                        Hi Folks,
                                        Thought I would start a thread so we could curate a go-to resource for Model A-related content on YouTube.
                                        I recently came across Paul Shinn's channel which I subscribed to. As a very new owner and someone who is just learning about Model A's, I like the way he explains things.
                                        Hopefully thos thread can be of use to more community members as everyone compiles their favorite...

                                        I have been lurking on the Model A forum and I am impressed with the way the members treat each other. I own two Ts and hope this T forum picks up. I have been a member of the MTFCA and its forum for some time. If any of you frequent that forum you will notice they are having some problems. Hoping I am welcome here

                                        I joined up over on the **** **** and figured I'd join in here too. I inherited my grandfathers Model A, it was his first car, he bought it in 1957 and restored it about 16 years ago. He taught me a lot about it but it seems there is always more to learn about these awesome cars, look forward to learning!

                                        I am curious to know if there are any other North Dakota members of VFF?
                                        In the late 1990s, I had purchased a very complete 1926 model T, touring turned into pickup. Unfortunately, I ended up selling it, for reasons I won’t get into.
                                        It had last run, sometime in the 1960s and had remained shedded, from that time on.
                                        Sadly, I never had the opportunity to hear it run, due to my having...
